that tunisia recently released a key suspect. poor libyan cooperation hampered the fbi's investigation. success here is a matter of justice. and it's also a matter of signalling to militants that there is no place for them to hide if they attack u.s. personnel. i will now turn to the distinguished ranking member, mr. engle for his opening remarks. >> thank you very much, mr. chairman for holding this important meeting. i hope we can use this as an opportunity to seriously examine the steps we need to take to prevent a repeat of the tragedy in benghazi rather than engaging in gotcha politics that make it more difficult to achieve this bipartisan goal. as the new rinking member, let me say on behalf of this committee, we would like to welcome you back and glad you are feeling better. this will likely be your final appearance before our committee and i want to take the opportunity to let you know how much we appreciate your outstanding and tireless efforts to represent our country in the international community. i have no doubt you will continue to serve our nation in some capacity as you have for

fbi director bob mueller was in libya last week. didn't say much other than we're working with the tunisian government. one suspect was released. >> they say he's under observation. >> they weren't ready to bring charges yet. you know, anderson, here's the problem. the bad guys understand this. they are watching. there hasn't been anybody brought to justice. they understand very well the environment they are operating in. security services have melted away after the arab spring. borders are easy to cross. weapons are easily assessable. the bad guys have an advantage. the longer it takes to bring an investigation to a conclusion and hold people accountable suggests to the bad guys that they have a free operating environment and americans are at risk throughout that region. >> interesting. fran, appreciate it. >>> diane o'meara learned from a reporter she was the face of manti te'o's fake girlfriend. her stolen image is at the center of an entire hoax that changed the way some people see the star linebacker. she joins me live ahead. >>> a controversial new book explores the
's still subject of the fbi investigation. >> john: as we just heard senator paul called secretary clinton's actions inexcusable and said she did not read her cables. >> any requests, any of the cables having to do with security did not come to my attention. 1.43 million cables come through the state department. they're all addressed to me. >> cenk: does that make sense to you? is that fair? >> sure, i've heard political hyperbole that suggests that the tragic death of four americans in benghazi rivals in some way to 9/11 in terms of its impact forgetting about afghanistan. 20,000 soldiers were dead. iraq where 4,000 soldiers died in service the country. i think it's ridiculous. i was an assistant secretary of state, and the secretary paid me and others of my colleagues to sort through information that came through our respective channels and report to her issues of significance and particularly issues that couldn't be resolveed at a lower level. i mean, obviously as the accountability review board indicated there were mistakes made. there were misjudgments made, and under estimations of t
monitoring by the tunisian government. there are other suspects that the f.b.i. are both closely following and consulting with partner governments. i think based on my last conversation with director muller, which was just a few days ago. he went to libya. he went to tunisia. heblet that the investigation is proceeding. i know that the f.b.i. has been up on the hill doing classified briefings with certain committees. i don't know about this committee. but i certainly hope that the f.b.i. is able to investigate, identify and hold responsible those who wage this attack against us. and i think that based on their work, they feel that they are pursuing some very positive leads. >> ok. my understanding is the thank you knees the person held in tunisia was released by a judge and that person has been released. so basically we don't really know at this point who did it. >> well, congressman, i confirmed with director muller who was just in tunisia meeting with their high officials that this person is basically under law enforcement surveillance and forbidden to leave tunis. director muller told m
dennboldened be one has paid a penalty for the attacks in benghazi? >> i know that the fbi has been briefing some committees. i assume some members of this committee are included. i don't know that but i would assume. about the progress of their investigation. i got the most recent update from the director a few days ago when he returned from north africa. they are following some very promising leads and putting together cases. they would have to speak to you directly about that in a classified setting. but i think what they are trying to determine is how best to respond and i think what the president clearly said is, we will respond and we will bring those to justice and i don't think anybody should doubt this president at his word. we have some very good examples of that. it may take time but he does not in any way divert attention from the goal of bringing them to justice. >> thank you, madam secretary. the president also said al qaeda has been decimated and in light of the recent terrorist activities that we continue to see in north africa, around the world, would you characterize that a

is this administration has been hiding behind an fbi investigation and then a 60-day accountability review board report just happened to land after the election. so they were playing election politics, no doubt about it. listen -- >> senator, you're playing politics too because one of the things you said, you said to buzz feed, i think she just decided before she was going to describe emotionally the four dead americans, that's when she was really choking up, the heroes and used that as her trump card to get out of the questions. it was a good way of getting out of really having to respond to me and then the other question i point out where you said -- when she said she didn't want to interfere in the process, you said, well, that's a good excuse. so it sounds to me like you're saying, a lot of that was just faked. >> well, i was responding to a question maybe i shouldn't. i agree with secretary clinton we need to understand what happened so we can prevent it in the future. but again, we do need to get to the bottom of what actually happened. what is the truth of the matter here. did the administration
complaints to the fbi led to the discovery of an extra- marital affair between david petraeus and -- and his biographer. no word yet on if the nomination is going to go forward now. >>> well, a group of palo alto students are headed home -- from washington with an experience of a lifetime. >> how are you? >> good. how are you? >> well, president obama and first lady michelle obama and the first dog bo, you can see him hanging out there, greeted students from the mid peninsula community media center. one of the students tells us they were just on a public tour when they were told to wait for a very "special guest." they were very delighted. they did, however, miss their flight but they say it was well worth it. >>> serena williams lost her cool during a tough loss in the australian open. williams smashed her racket several times during her painful loss to an american teenager. earlier williams had hurt her back slowing her serve and causing her obvious pain. her opponent is on her way to the semifinals. many predict the 19-year-old sloane stephens cop become mesh's next superstar. >>> an upda
something like this is? >> it's hard for the fbi to know that because many victims don't even know they're victims unless you're blackmailed like the gentleman in that story did. and the problem is once he gets in, he can have hundreds of people he can watch at once. >> thank you. i don't think i'll be opening any e-mails from you any time soon. >> he's not the problem. >> i know. a check of the weather from al. >> a bunch of kids from tucson. a little colder than tucson? >> we're freezing! >> what school is this? >> we've also got a system from the west, a double barrelled system from minneapolis down to tennessee pushing friday across the country through the great lakes and the mid-atlantic and reforming off the northeast coast. it will be bringing a lot of snow with it, especially along the great lakes and appalachians and all the way to the blue ridge mountainses, talking anywhere from 3 to 6 inches and lake effect snow could see 6-9 inches in new york state. icing conditions from bowling green to the blue ridge and north carolina area. we're talking significant icing a quarter of i
evidence yet to charge him. fbi director mueller was in libya last week, talking to the libyans about the ongoing investigation. it's very frustrating to the families and to many who watch this, these investigations, these international ones, are complicated and they do take time. but believe me, wolf, the bad guys in the region watch this. and the longer it goes without anybody being brought to justice, it's an indication to them that they have freedom of action, if you will, to target western facilities and westerners, and you see things like the attack on the algerian oil facility. >> so, fran, i want to ask you, when you were watching this testimony from secretary clinton, this very lengthy testimony, hitting on so many topics, what was your big impression? what was your big takeaway from what you heard from her today? >> you know, i put myself, kate, in the position of the families who lost, you know, ambassador stevens' family and the other families. and i think, more than anything, i was frustrated. you know, they were asking -- the members of congress were asking secretary cli
are the people who are being prosecuted? where are the suspects in custody? is that for her to answer or the f.b.i. and why don't we have answers about that? >> we don't have answers 'cause they haven't done anything. one thing they called an f.b.i. investigation, which is a criminal investigation, this was obviously an act of terror. but by saying it doesn't matter, then that sets aside or diminishes the importance of all the measures they failed to take. there were warnings. there was attacks on a british ambassador. there was a request to keep an additional security force there because of the rising threat. it was obvious that there was -- including rather urgent messages september by our am -- sent by our ambassador back to washington which she said she never saw. i was in tripoli with christopher stevens on july 7. he was deeply concerned about security there. cnn reporter found a message from him weeks later in the burned out consulate. so look, this thing has been a cover-up. i'm sorry to tell you that probably the adoring media will now say, well, that chapter is over. well, it's not over
has hampered the fbi's investigation success here is a matter of justice and it's also a matter of signaling to the militants that there is no place for them to hide if the attack u.s. personnel. i will now turn to the distinguished ranking member for his opening remarks. >> thank you mr. chairman for holding this important hearing. i hope that we can use this for an opportunity to seriously examine the steps that we need to take to end their reach peak of the tragedy in benghazi rather than engaging in the gotcha politics and in gauging the to achieving this bipartisan goal. madam secretary, as the new ranking member on the foreign affairs committee, what me say on behalf of the democratic members on this committee, we would like to welcome you back to the committee in regard that you are feeling better. this would likely be a final appearance before our committee and i want to take this opportunity to let you know how much we appreciate your outstanding and tireless efforts to represent our country in the international community. i have no doubt you will continue to serve the
threatened and actually scared for her life. that's why she reached out to a friend in the f.b.i and she's telling her side of the story. she didn't want to hurt anybody. general allen, although the investigation delayed his promotion, i do think it's important and caused for embarrassment and he's been cleared. all the earlier reports about hundreds of e-mail are not true. >> gretchen: but this is a case of what happens when a story goes out there and then does a retraction get as much attention as the actual story? i mean, remember, it was said 30,000 e-mails. people were scratching their heads like and they're make accusations saying how could he manage afghanistan and it turns out he wasn't. can you regain your reputation after something like that? i think it's a shame that this happened to this great general who apparently actually was doing his job in afghanistan. >> steve: he was. and the inspector general said they have cleared him of any wrongdoing. however, they were able to figure out that it was this ball la broadwell sending the e-mail she was having the affair with david pe
know, the fbi is still on the case. all of the reforms suggested by the arb are important. plus this high-threat index that the state department is implementing. john kerry must make the security of our personnel abroad a very high priority. but let's understand, these people, these magnificent heroes who work in our state department sign up to put their lives on the line, if necessary, to project diplomacy and hopefully win hearts and minds around the world. and that is important. we can't just hunker down and live in bunkers in the united states of america. >> senator rand paul who has expressed interest in running for president in 2016 said hillary clinton would have been fired over the benghazi attack if he were in charge. take a look. >> i think that ultimately with your leaving, you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9 9/11, and i really mean that. had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you of your post. i think it's inexcusable.
to light after jill kelly, who lives in the house over there, contacted the fbi about what she called threatening e-mails. throughout all of this, jill kelly has remained silent, until now. socialite jill kelly was thrown into the media spotlight last october as the story of general david petraeus and his affair with biographer paula broadwell unfolded. kelly was described in the media as the other, other woman. now she's telling her side of the story in an interview with a reporter for the daily beast, describing the ordeal as a living nightmare. >> jill kelly seemed to me to be someone who didn't quite know what hit her. she doesn't think she did anything wrong. her life has been totally turned upside down. >> kelly came to him to the interview to try to clear her name. she said she was terrified last summer when her husband, scott, read a mysterious e-mail on her joint account. >> she didn't know that these anonymous e-mails were from paula broadwell or even a woman. they terrified her. they were, in her view, full of threats and blackmail. >> reporter: kelly describes her relation
